Career Education Resource Laboratory. Final Report.
Eastern Illinois Univ., Charleston. Center for Educational Studies.
School administrators, teachers, parents, and students in schools belonging to the Eastern Illinois School Development Council were surveyed to determine the need for a career education resource laboratory as a vehicle for coordinating an area career education program, K-12. The opening summary briefly describes the objectives of the project, the procedures followed, and the primary conclusion, based on an average 81 percent positive response from the various groups out of a 64.6 percent return that a need and desire exist for such a center. Described in more detail in the body of the report are: the problem area toward which the project was directed (a system for preparation and distribution of relevant career information); the five goals of the project; the general project design and procedures; and conclusions, implications, and recommendations. A seven-item bibliography concludes the report. More than half of the document consists of appendixes devoted to a survey overview and separate summaries of the survey's five areas: business and industry, fourth and eighth grade students, eleventh grade students, school staff, and parents. Data on responses to the surveys are tabulated and their implications discussed. The questionnaires are also included, with samples of covering letters. (NH)
